Inkjet print­ers that ri­val laser print­ers

Print and save more with Ep­son’s new com­pact in­te­grated ink tank sys­tem print­ers.

HWM (Singapore) - - GEAR -

Does your inkjet printer run out of ink very quickly, even though you don’t print a lot? And do you feel the pinch when pay­ing for the costly re­place­ment toner car­tridges?

If so, it’s time to take a look at Ep­son’s new com­pact in­te­grated ink tank sys­tem print­ers. Fit­ted with in­te­grated ink tanks that can be eas­ily re­filled with af­ford­able high yield ink bot­tles, these print­ers are able to print sev­eral thou­sands of pages, com­pared to con­ven­tional laser print­ers that can only print a frac­tion of that.

Ep­son, which has been mak­ing ink tank sys­tem print­ers since 2010, has just in­tro­duced its lat­est lineup, with five new mod­els of­fer­ing faster speeds, en­hanced fea­tures, and a more com­pact de­sign.

For a start, the new ink tank print­ers – L6190, L6170, L6160, L4160, L4150 – have their ink tanks in­te­grated into the unit, in­stead of protrud­ing from the side like past mod­els. This means the new print­ers take up less space, and you can quickly de­ter­mine re­main­ing ink lev­els from the front.

Each re­place­ment ink bot­tle’s nozzle is also uniquely shaped, so each bot­tle can only fit its own tank, elim­i­nat­ing re­fill er­rors and spillage dur­ing re­fill. Bet­ter yet, a sin­gle black ink bot­tle, which costs just $14.90, is able to print 7,500 pages in mono; and a set of color ink bot­tles, which costs $9.90 each, is able to print 6,000 pages in color. That’s equiv­a­lent to about ve stan­dard ton­ers of a con­ven­tional laser printer! You can also print on both sides of the pa­per to fur­ther re­duce costs.

Fea­tur­ing a 30-sheet au­to­matic doc­u­ment feeder, a fax func­tion, and sup­port for mo­bile and cloud print­ing, the L6190 is suit­able for small and medium-sized en­ter­prises. The L6170 omits the fax func­tion but re­tains the use­ful ADF. Smaller busi­nesses that don’t need the ADF for multi-page scan­ning jobs can turn to the L6160, which also has a print speed of 15 ipm for mono and 8.0 ipm for color.

The L4160 is par­tic­u­larly great for home users look­ing for a mul­ti­func­tion printer with a low run­ning cost. This auto du­plex-ca­pa­ble printer has a top print speed of 10.5 ipm for mono and 5 ipm for color, and like all the other new mod­els, is ca­pa­ble of bor­der­less photo print­ing at up to A4. Fi­nally, the L4150 of­fers ex­cep­tional value for the money: it uses the same long-last­ing ink tanks as the oth­ers, and de­spite the small size, is also a mul­ti­func­tion de­vice ca­pa­ble of wire­less and mo­bile print­ing.

So don’t be fooled into buy­ing cheap print­ers that use small and ex­pen­sive ink car­tridges be­cause you’ll end up pay­ing more in the long run. To print more and save more, check out Ep­son’s ink tank sys­tem print­ers to­day.
